Found this postcard recently. Ballyhaskin is a rural townland between Ballywalter and Millisle. Not much to see there, but once upon a time it was thought picturesque enough to have a postcard printed. An idyllic image from a simpler time.
"Oul boat-holes gien up thair task in,
Reuch an roakie Ballyhaskin,
Eneuch o pladdies fur tha askin,
An mair on doon,
Roakie heidlans at Tha Whuskin,
Gar boats gang roon"
